The Edge Weekly celebrates 18 years of being ‘Your Window to Malaysia’ with the release of a revamped publication in two weeks.
“It is hard to do radical design changes, but what we are focusing on are changes in terms of content to deal with questions confronting newspapers today and delivering sharper news content,” said Leslie Lopez, editor-in-chief.
Readers will see changes on the front page, the layout of stories and the positioning of main stories.
“You will also see signs of rejuvenation in our other media platforms like theedgemalaysia.com, The Edge Financial Daily, Personal Money and Haven,” said Lopez.
It also plans to inject more levity into sections like Options and City & Country to target its younger readers who put a premium on style, fashion and living well.
Lopez himself is a new addition to The Edge, having joined as editor-in-chief this June. He joined from The Straits Times Singapore where he was its senior regional correspondent.
Prior to that, he headed the Kuala Lumpur bureau of The Wall Street Journal, covering developments in Southeast Asia.
